Hashem Sayed, a 25-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem, is currently involved in social developmental activities within several NGOs. He received his bachelor’s in Developmental Studies from Al-Quds University and is enrolled in a Pre-Masters program in Environmental Anthropology research at the Man-in-Drylands department of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Hashem also attended Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in fall 2015 and spring 2016. He sees his future career as an academic researcher in anthropology developing the Palestinian communities by raising awareness about sustainability and how to save the environment.
